What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: a different life, an affirmation of life, cyanide, old things, frozen yogurt, pastrami, lobsters, a bloody mary, tiny hot dogs, Indian Ladder, Dan Eaton, a mural, and Brother Al.

Rob took a moment at a spot in downtown Albany where homeless people had been living.

Kevin went to a "life-affirming" performance at the Troy Bike Rescue.

Jackie survived a chemical weapon attack from a millipede.

Tim checked out the Historic Albany Architectural Parts Warehouse.

One of Kristi's readers asked about local mini-golf spots.

Ashallann enjoyed some "absolutely amazing" frozen yogurt that evoked a shamrock shake.

Jerry had some "very good" pastrami on a bagel in Troy.

Albany Jane scored fresh lobsters in Cohoes.

Daniel B considered what he doesn't know about the Capital Region.

Steve enjoyed the fantasy-inducing bloody mary at McGeary's.

Mr. Dave created "a Rolf's mini-dog popper."

Emily had a "great lunch" at Indian Ladder Farms' Yellow Rock Cafe.

Amanda wondered if she should have said something to a group of teens in a drug store.

Via David at Friday Puppy, a first-hand account of the Dan Eaton Band (you know, the YNN cooking guy).

And Chuck remembered Brother Al.

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
